Beyond Good & Evil was one of my all time favourite games on the Game Cube. Unfortunately the game came and went without too much fuss, although considering the difficulty I had finding a copy on release probably had something to do with it.
Recently Ubisoft announced that a HD remake was in the works (and there was much rejoicing) that promised to give this cult classic a second chance. The good news is that as this unannounced release date looms ever nearer Ubisoft teases us with a teaser trailer.
Its no secret that Ubisoft have been working on a follow up to this 2003 masterpiece and have even teased media for that too. The funny thing is that since they originally showed off the original teaser, they have yet to reveal any other information about the sequel. An assumption being made at the moment is that this HD remake will provide a spring board for the second game to spring off of.
My only fear here is what if internally at Ubisoft, this HD remake is actually being used as a barometer to see if BG&E 2 is worth the money they’ve spent or are spending. If this is the case and part of me thinks it could be, poor sales of BG&E HD could cause a game already stuck in development hell to never see the light of day.
